, what he wants to do with the navy. it strikes me as important, as well. if you could play that. >> the navy is an indispensable part of our security apparatus. first it is the one unobjectable power we have in the world. obviously, our balances of the asia pacific, persian gulf, we talked all day about iran, specifically iran in the persian gulf. you know we have the fifth fleet, and bahrain, two little battle groups in that small area. the flexibility, the agility, nuclear defense, all the capabilities are within the navy. so i am a strong supporter of advancing our navy technology and our efforts. and i will continue to do that if confirmed. >> now, that word re-balancing. that is an important word there. so what does it have to do with the navy? >> it has everything to do with it. everything that obama is trying to do in terms of grand u.s. national security strategy hinges on the navy in some way or another. we're talking about getting out of -- wars that seem to last forever. in the middle east and south asia and move towards where obama and now hagel is committing himself

candidates. there's the former lieutenant governor who we haven't heard from. there's also a former navy s.e.a.l. named gabriel mendez who i think is considering it. he's in the financial industry. so it's a wide-open field. wolf, special elections are special, anything can happen. they're quick, money helps. name i.d. helps. i think it's an open race. remember, scott brown wasn't supposed to win his special election and he did. >> i don't know if you look closely, the democrats had congressman ed markey for example. you think he has the democratic nomination locked up? >> the democrats are cowelle cowellessing around him. that's a good thing. ana's right. if you look at brown, he didn't have the big money or the famous name. the republicans are looking for love in all the wrong places. tagg romney is impressive. he hasn't done very much in the public arena. his father lost the state by 23 points. i looked up, the town of belmont, not exactly, you know, a left-wing territory. it's pretty liberal. romney lost that almost 2 to 1. i would say don't look for a name, look for a message. scott b

"secretary of state hillary rodham clinton is leaving office with a slap at the critics of the obama administration's critics of the handling of the september attack on a u.s. diplomatic mission in libya. there are some people in politics and the press who can't be confused by the facts. they just will not live in an evidence-based world. and that is regrettable. it
not by a drone, but by a navy s.e.a.l. team was of course the killing of osama bin laden in his compound in pakistan. the highest professional drone strike killing was this guy, anwar al awlaki. he was born in new mexico and killed in yemen. but between those very high profile killings, there have been dozens and dozens, ultimately hundreds of drone strikes under president obama, most of them mostly unnoticed in the news. tonight monday of president obama's inauguration, the first day president obama outlined this wide ranging liberal agenda for his second term, that same day there was a drone strike in yemen. and that drone strike on inauguration day followed drone strikes in yemen on both days of the weekend that preceded inauguration day. so we had drone strikes on saturday and on sunday and on monday, the monday the president was sworn in. it doesn't really make the news. one of the most unusual things about drone strikes for us as citizens in a country that does this is that for so long our country would not admit that we did them, even when we all knew that we did. that was the cas
